non-breaking space Edited

Here's my problem:

  1. use a Mac with OS X 10.8.0
  2. use the hosted (Atlassian OnDemand) Confluence
  3. edit a page
  4. try to insert a non-breaking space

I have no idea how to insert that non-breaking space. I've tried finding a macro and I've tried using ' ', to no avail.

Help would be appreciated!

Hello Ernst,

As you're using a hosted Confluence then I would suggest you to raise a support ticket at our and then take a better look into this behaviour with one of our Engineers, this would be the best approach here.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,

Option + space bar is supposed to insert an ascii non-breaking space (ascii 255) on Macs.

For PC it is ctrl+shift+space.

Under the Symbol menu, first selection right before the & (it is a space, but once you mouse-over it correctly, it will stay "non-break space"
